Musings on my Second Act

"Life is both fucked and fuckable."

He laughed when I wrote that.

My take o.n the iconic Dickens opening line of “A Tale of Two Cities”, updated into the modern vernacular because it is a more perfect summation of my life these last few months. I mean, 2020 has crept up on al.l of us unawares, but it creeped
up &then sucker-punched me right in the gut.

For once, I’ve got a secret and it’s my secret keep or tell. I’ve kept others’ secrets, often for years, but this one? This one is mine t.o do with as I will.
So, I have t.o write about it, talk about it, blog it, vlog it, even wrote a song about it.

yeah, and b.a.d. poetry, I’ve written some really bad, drunk poetry.

This is my journey now; this road I’m meandering down.
I’m inviting you come along for the ride. I’ll try stay the course between those painted white lines on the highway; between fucked and fuckable, and hopefully discover what the new normal looks like for m.e.

Added you to my (already rather extensive) watchlist - I kind of specialize in spotting up and coming bloggers, and suspect you've got what it takes!

Now, what's is this secret? TELL ME / TELL ME - either here, via email on this site, or via my private post linked below.

Your blog-title is mindful of F. Scott Fitzgerald, who wrote, "I once thought that there were no second acts in American lives". Cynics have appropriated and truncated this line to a more pessimistic quip, with which many are more familiar. I am confident you will validate Fitzgerald's change of heart on the possibilities of reinvention.

My outlook being generally positive, I am convinced that 2020 will be relegated to the dustbin of History (notwithstanding its endless retelling and analysis by *ink-stained wretches*). Although millions of lives have been taken or ruined, we will find our way across this miserable landscape to some *new normal*. Humankind has survived worse.

As to your *secret*, my sense is that it is consequential only to you. To that effect, bear in mind that among our greatest regrets in Life are the things we did not say.

Thank you for your kind words! I didn't think I had a 2nd act in me, and yet, here I am. Stay tuned!

it is not always the best of times

it is not always the worst of times

sometimes dark, sometimes bright

hope and despair to go around

yeah, that was a story

intrigued

hmm

let the games begin

may the odds be ever in your favor

Marvin Gaye - "Got to Give It Up"

I used to go out to parties
And stand around
'Cause I was too nervous
To really get down
But my body yearned to be free
I got up on the floor and found
Someone to choose me
No more standin' along the side walls
Now I've got myself together, baby
And I'm havin' a ball
Long as you prove it
There's always a chance
Somebody watches
Might wanna make romance
Move your body, ooo baby, you dance all night
To the groove and feel all right
Everybody's groovin' on like a fool
But if you see me, top down, let me in
Baby just party high and low
Let me step into your erotic zone

You are an excellent writer and thinker a nice break from the incessant "pictionary" blogs... I believe it was F.Scot Fitzgrald who said there are no second acts in America, but at least there are second helpings.. life as a buffet table

The journey blog will always be interesting to follow, especially a well written one with an witty perspective like yours.

Thank you Dr. No
Yours has been a helluva read today! It's got all the makings of a book...an erotic autobiography. A collection of short stories. You could title it: "Cock Sure: A Sex Positive Journey", cuz you sure aren't half-cocked!!

If I ever find my self in Washington, maybe we could write a chapter between us? I hope I could tempt you to take a walk on the wild side.
